Dating Australian men and trying to impress Australian men takes some research or looking within. What comes to mind when you think of an Australian man? Dreamy blue eyes? Bronze silky skin? Luscious blond hair? Perhaps the accent of an Angel? Yes, I can confirm, Australian men are just as beautiful as they sound yet I can confirm the struggles for girls when trying to date Australian men
With a combination of both my personal experiences from living in Australia and those of the women around me…
These are the top struggles girls faces when trying to date Australian men:
Always Second When Dating Australian Men
You might be the most perfect, loving, “make your man sandwiches every day with extra bacon” type gal, but there will always be someone they will put before you. They even go to see her the second they wake up in the morning and for some hardcore Aussies, even late in the night. Their hearts belong to those beautiful waves that give them the chance to be one with the ocean. I am sure they like you, I am sure you are tops. But the ocean comes first, then you… eh, or sports. It’s debatable.
Australians Are Traveling Addicts
Aussie guys love to travel. And I mean LOOOOVE to travel. Which I have always found to be a very sexy trait. Traveling makes us more worldly and open-minded but when it comes to trying to date someone, it is utterly annoying!! Many Aussies travel for months at a time, and frankly, you are lucky if they even come back. Often when I try dating an Aussie, by the second date he will already be off in London, Mexico or Budapest. Doesn’t really matter where he’s at! All I know is by the time they come back… well, crap!
What was your name again?
Australian Girls Are Gorgeous
Aussie girls. Seriously. It is disgusting how stunning they are. Oh, and on top of that, they are always literally in every direction you look. I will go out on Saturday night feeling like I’m looking pretty good just to walk into the bar and, seriooooousllyyyy?!!? Welp! Back home it is for some Netflix and Cheese. When dating Australian men, there is just no competing with all these babealicious girls running around this country. Well, unless you can catch a guy alone and drunk. Very drunk.
Australian Men are Boozers
Too many times to count, have I showed up to meet my date and he is already three sheets to the wind! Alcohol is very social here, making it common for Aussie guys to go for drinks with coworkers after work oorrrrr, have a liquid lunch. So the odds of him being well oiled by the time you even know his name is just like his blood alcohol content, very high. I am all about having a few drinks on a date, but nothing is sexy about someone already barking at the moon before I arrive.
It’s a Struggle When They Know They are Sexy
I am pretty sure all this talk of their dreaminess is not at all going to their heads. How do I know? Because I know they already know!!!! Trust me they knowwww. And since they are aware, the lack of effort these guys put into dating or making a commitment is seriously pathetic. They know they do not even need to try, and that is the problem. Dating Australian men and trying to plan a night out or even just suggest where to meet is too much to ask. Have a door opened for you or have them get the bill?
HA, now we are talking crazy talk.
Australian Men Love Their Motorbikes
This was something that came as a surprise to me when I first started dating here. The majority of Aussie guys don’t drive cars?! No no. Instead, they ride a motorbike. Their precious, “I need to talk about it every five seconds,” motorbike. Dating a guy with a motorbike is hard because they are always off riding and harder to get a hold of. I once made reservations at a 5-star restaurant for him to show up in freaking jeans and boogers on his face!
Sports and Australian Men -Struggle!!
Dating Australian men on a night that a match is on is a joke. Like most men anywhere, Aussie’s love their sports, and going to a live event or watching it at the pub with mates often takes first priority. Who am I kidding, it ALWAYS takes first priority. Doesn’t matter if he says it is AFL, BBL, NRL, or AL, I think OMG, FML! They will cancel any plans they might have accidentally made on game night to ensure they are a part of the craziness. If you are lucky you will get a very becoming drunk call after to meet up.
Struggle to Date Australian Men When Out-Numbered
Not only is there a surplus of smoking hot ladies here, on top of that there is an extreme scarcity of single men. So what is the result of this economic dating crisis you ask? Guys will just go from one girl to the next one. It is safe to say Aussie guys are not too big on commitment. You can totally be his Thursday night, but just know he probably already has a Friday, Saturday and Sunday night as well.
Want to know why? Because they can!
Well, there you have it! Some interesting struggles we face trying to date Australian men.
Regardless of the struggles, I still love my Aussie Guys! <3
Have any additional struggles to add?
